Geographical remit: 
National - Britain


JCWI was founded in 1967 to defend the rights of Britain's migrant communities and fight or a fairer immigration system. For more than half a century, we have challenged policies that lead to destitution, discrimination and the denial of rights. We have provided high-quality, accessible legal advice and support to tens of thousands of people, helping them to secure their immigration status, keep their families together and escape poverty. And we have consistently been one of the leading voices calling for a fairer, more just immigration system that works for everyone.


  • We provide high-quality, accessible legal advice;
  • We train others, improving the quantity and quality of available advice;
  • We directly challenge laws that will lead to discrimination, the denial of rights and injustice;
  • We produce trusted analysis and commentary on immigration law and policy and we develop progressive policy recommendations;
  • We campaign and engage in strategic advocacy, articulating the case for progressive reform in ways that grow and energise our supporter network and persuade others.
